The State Government has not completed the Strategic Assessment process, the EPA has not reported its findings or made recommendations to the Government and no tick off has been provided by the Commonwealth, despite all this the Shire of Broome has given approval for drilling on Manari Road to James Price Point. Drilling started today on the first of 9 boreholes in the road. Protestors and bogged vehicles delayed the convoy of drilling and other machinery along the road. Diesel fuel leaked onto the road causing a stir amongst the Woodside crew and they carefully wiped it up with paper towel. Woodside's traffic management plan has provided Broome with its first set of traffic lights- on Manari Road for goodness sake.
